How lame are scooters?

I have a decent bike, but it takes up a lot of space in my small NYC apartment (Brooklyn specifically), even getting it out of my narrow door is annoying.

Also too, I can't bike to work in the middle of winter or summer comfortably. Buses and trains can get packed easily, so I think this cool scooter is the way to go, (though I know I'll have to wait till May to get this one specifically).


Thoughts /n/?

Good luck
Have fun on that scooter in the middle of the winter. Studded 26x2 tires would have a tad more traction than those toilet paper rolls.

Just get a shitty folder and call it a day.
>not enough room for a bike.
Fuck, do you live in a closet? If you have room on your wall, you could hang it there. If you're making the lack of space story up to justify yourself to "hardcore" bike dudes, then just get a used motor cycle.

428 KB,
So, my region may finally get a large, comprehensive public transportation system, provided some millage gets passed. But I'm wondering, are rapid transit bus lines bad? The plan is pretty much a plethora of bus lines, with one commuter rail line and a tiny streetcar line that they're not even building, just buying after it's no longer operating privately. I've heard some negative things about BRT, which they're building three lines for, and that they tend to become worse over time and just destroy any opportunity for rail. Does anybody live in a city...

No matter what mode of transit, the only thing that matters for daily transit riders is frequency and reliability of service. And no matter where in the world, bus transit is the integral part of all small-mid-sized cities. In Europe, cities large and small install bus-only lanes, signal priority, and subway-style fare collection to existing routes. Whereas in America this is called BRT, and politicians think it must be specially branded to differentiate it from the lowly bus, in Europe. it's called "the...

I mean, either way I like that there's going to be higher access to transportation. I'm in an area where taking public transportation for my commute would make it five times longer. I'm just curious whether it actually has any bad implications for longer-term...

Every metro area ever that developed rapid transit first developed a base of high ridership through frequent surface networks. Buses just happened to match the efficiency and surpass the scalability of the streetcar in the late 20th century. The eventual replacement of Woodward/Gratiot/Michigan BRT with rail should be evaluated on a case-by-case basis, based on whether ridership has actually built up to the point where running bigger LRT cars would save on operating cost.

>What am I in for?
Depends on your fitness/strength/skill level. For me, I can handle most hills easily on a single speed. My college campus has some steep ones so I still bring my mountain bike more often than not. Around the rest of town, I do fine on the cruiser.

Repoasting. I've got a two parter regarding bike storage:

1. Is there any problem with hanging a bike like pic related? Will it damage the wheel after ling periods of time?

2. Say I'm considering long term storage, should I take my bikes inside or leave them in the garage?

Im about to pull the trigger on this one, is there a reason why I shouldn't? its either this or the xiaomi one, not sure if I can post this here since this board has a hate boner towards ebikes tho.

Breaking Away was kinda fun, and being a road racer the race at the end kinda got my blood up -- even if I haven't seen a race run like that before (but I don't race track, so what do I know, right?)

What other good bike racing movies are there?
30 replies and 10 images submitted. Click here to view.
Most of the bike-related movies that exist are terrible, or mediocre at best.

Ladri di Biciclette is by far the best bike-related movie, but doesn't involve racing.

American Flyers is cheesy but probably the best depiction of intense bike racing in a movie.

The Flying Scotsman is pretty good too.

Nasu: Summer in Andalusia is great if you're interested in animated films
That's pretty much the list unless you want some movies that aren't bike racing?

Although I just watched 2 secondes, you can watch it here:


Has downhill in the beginning and a race at the end. I found it quite charming and the bike shop owner was great, would love to have a LBS like that.

You could always watch the TDF stuff like Slaying the Badger or the Pantani movie if you feel like more crappy movies with bikes in them.

Pretty safe, really. Even in a derailment you're probably not going to get hurt. Amtrak seldom runs on dark territory so it's not like you'll go flying into a cut of cars because somebody forgot to line a switch back.
Train accidents are rare and unusual, you're safer going by Amtrak than by almost any other mode.
amtrak is safe, relatively with contemporary equipment.
it's management and operation is awful however.
makes italian trains look pleasant.

I never cycled once during the past 8 years and i'd like to know how long would it take for me to get conditioned to biking between 35-45 km two time a day in less than 2 hours , Five to six day of the weeks .

thanks fucking nigger
45k is around 27 miles, you are not going to ride nearly 50 miles a day any time soon.
A steady commuting speed is around 15-6mph depending on hills. Do you really want to spend 4 hours a day riding a bike, nearly every day, and not being able to run or do anything else? You don't.

A lot of gottagofastfags on this board will say I'm wrong, but I'm not. If you want to do it, it will take you a few months to get there from scratch, but the real struggle will be later when you're burning out and getting injured.

I want high speed rail in America. Automobile traffic in areas like LA make me wish that they had built a decent enough rail system in Southern California.

Nuking China and India would help the world in general desu.
This. Asian style of overcrowding simply can't happen with European and North American urban planning and density. Not even NYC during rush is this bad.
That wouldn't happen. LA is as big as Berlin and the metropolitan area is as populated as the Rhein-Ruhr area in Germany, and nothing like this occurs in either of those places. Asian cities are so densely populated and overcrowded that something like in your video can happen. But it would not occur in sprawling, car friendly, spaced out American cities.

If you are remotely coordinated/competent then it is trivially easy (and if you're 21 and male these things are pretty much a given) just borrow a bike and roll around around a patch of grass, you will pick it up in literally minutes.

"learning to ride a bike" is something 3 year olds, women and cripples do. Just get on a bike and ride.
The more scared you are the worse it will be. Just ride somewhere where any falls won't matter and just get to it. You'll probably be riding by the end of the day
It'd be more embarrassing if you didn't try.

When I ride an airplane at night, I often love looking at the absolute darkness, or the clouds, or the stars.
When I ride after 6pm through the Turkish and Arab boroughs of Berlin. Not good. After I got harassed several times (often they sit in their cars), I started to come up with alternative routes that take longer but are safer.
My parents live a little way off the main street next to an area with a forest and a riverside park where there is a market once a month. The area is completely unlit so it can turn pitch black at night. There's only a small streetlight in front of the house.
I have no trouble riding my bike through that area, as long as the light is working. But I usually walk the long way around on foot, and even then the last 50 meters usually give me the heebie jeebies.
